Natural disasters-tornadoes, volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc all remind us of our frailty on this planet. It reminds us of the constant forces that really run the planet, as opposed to our own..."attempts" at the mastery of things. I stare at their aftermath with a dispassionate fascination. I had an amazing dream of watching several large tornadoes approaching where I lived. It was cool and tramatic enough, in the same thought. Then, out of the blue I recieved an email from my new found pal John Brosio. John paints tornadoes like no one I have ever seen. Huge, gallery-styled works that are awe inspiring in ways that art should be, that, I long to be myself. I found it amazing I would have a dream of these tornadoes, and then, the same morning get an email from a guy who I never knew and yet admired his work for years and years-claiming he was a fan of mine!
In the meantime I did two new paintings on my theme of volcanoes. What am I up to? Is a BIG painting with volcanoes...in the works? Could be...could very well be.. in the meantime, enjoy.
NOTE: I have been busy and am limiting my small works for this blog to about two a week now. That may change as we get into summer.
